Sometimes I truly hate living in Australia. I feel like the rest of the world thinks we are so far away that we are not connected to them in any way, shape or form.
Australia gets international tv shows like Gossip Girl and the Hills. And we are pretty much up-to-date.
You can drink water straight from the tap.
We are not retarded outback hicks who talk like Crocodile Dundee.
And we get the internet.
Today, as readers know, I embarked on my quest for the perfect coral lippy/nail polish. Found gorgeous nail polish at Kit, as expected. "Go Getter" is pretty uninspiring in the bottle (looks like a dark fluro orange) but it is divine on your nails. Also got a pale coral "Go Out" which is a pretty everyday version when you don't want too much colour. Both $15.95 (though I obviously got them for free when I successfully exchanged the awful mint green/powder blue combo I got last week).
I also found the perfect coral NARS lipstick. Two, in fact. My biggest problem was deciding on which one I liked better. I went with the darker, slightly pinkier one, "Niagara". It cost me $58. For one lipstick. That is $19 more than the last pair of shoes I bought (dark red, suede Nine West wedges - half price at $39).
Why did I buy it when it was so expensive? Because I am a giant idiot-head and it looked really pretty on me. Anyways, then I couldn't get the other one out of mind and checked it out online. NARS LIPSTICKS ARE $28 FROM THE NARS WEBSITE! THAT IS IN AUD! I am dy-ing. Of course, NARS doesn't ship outside the US but I have a plan for that. Totally going back tomorrow and returning my unopened $58 lippy.
Honestly. Did they think I wouldn't find out?
